Will the classic gentleman thief return for a fourth season? Here is everything we know so far about Lupin Season 4.
There are certain shows that leave viewers wanting more because they completely grab the heartstrings of the audience. One such series is none other than Lupin, which is a French mystery thriller streaming television series created by George Kay and François Uzan that has taken the world by storm and breathed new life into the genre!
The love for this series can be evaluated when we take a look at the overall viewership, as the series was watched by 76 million households during its first month, becoming the most-watched non-English series on Netflix at the time, and it does not seem to stop anytime soon as the third season has already scored a perfect 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, which it truly deserves from the viewers and critics around the world.
The series surely has been one of the most talked-about shows in recent times, leaving no doubt in our minds why the fans have started to wonder if the series will be renewed for a fourth season or not. So, if you are speculating on the same thing, then you have reached the right place! For your consideration, we have compiled all the latest renewal updates about Lupin Season 4.
Lupin Season 4 Renewal Status: Will there be another season?
We know that the anticipation for the fourth season’s renewal is at an all-time high, but we have to inform the readers that, as of writing this, no new updates relating to the series’ early renewal have been announced by Netflix or the show creators.
One of the reasons is that the show just premiered its third season a few hours ago, and most of the viewers haven’t even streamed all 7 episodes, which makes it way too early to evaluate the accurate reception with respect to ratings and viewership for the show’s creators to go ahead and justify approval of another season. Hence, it is understandable why the network hasn’t jumped at the opportunity to greenlight the show this early on.
Furthermore, we have noticed that even though a show might have been able to gather an amazing response, it takes up to three months to get the renewal confirmed. Due to this, the current status of Lupin Season 4 is neither here nor there, and at this moment, anything can happen! On the bright side, if the renewal isn’t announced within the next few days, then there are chances that the network is still in the evaluation stage of the show’s post-release performance and viewership in order to get another season greenlit.
We would also like to mention that the renewal might be just around the corner, as the cliffhanger ending leaves all kinds of narrative doors open for the creators to continue the story for another season. In conclusion, this kind of paints the picture that the chances of a fourth season happening are still on the table, as it might start production around 2024 only if the renewal is approved later in the year for it to eventually premiere around the fall of next year! Hence, the fans should stay patient and hope for the best if the network agrees to renew the series for additional seasons.
Lupin Season 4: If renewed, what can the fans expect from the new season?
If renewed, the series will continue the plot from the third season by expanding the theme and character arcs, which follows: “Now in hiding, Assane must learn to live far from his wife and son. With the suffering they endure because of him, Assane can’t stand it any longer and decides to return to Paris to make them a crazy proposal: leave France and start a new life elsewhere. But the ghosts of the past are never far away, and an unexpected return will turn his plans upside down.” In addition to this, the plot will expand from the final episode of the third season, “Chapter 7.”
In the episode, the viewers got to see that a family reunion years in the making has come to pass. With Mariama’s help, Assane makes a final play to stop Keller, right his wrongs, and go out in style. Moreover, the main cast members from the third season who can return in the fourth season if it is renewed are as follows: Omar Sy as Assane Diop; Ludivine Sagnier as Claire, his ex-girlfriend and Raoul’s mother; Etan Simon as Raoul; Assane and Claire’s son; Antoine Gouy as Benjamin Ferel, Assane’s closest friend; Soufiane Guerrab as detective Youssef Guedira, and Shirine Boutella as lieutenant detective Sofia Belkacem, among other main and recurring cast members.
Lupin is co-created by George Kay and François Uzan for Netflix and Gaumont Télévision. Ludovic Bernard, Podz and Xavier Gens direct. The original French series is a contemporary adaptation of the novels penned by French writer Maurice Leblanc, who created the character in 1905. The books have been adapted into dozens of TV series and movies over the years. There might be some new characters being introduced in the series, which will be revealed in the future seasons as they undoubtedly add an extra layer of excitement and mystery to the storyline in case the fourth season is the last one.
Lupin Season 4: If renewed, what will be the official episode count, and where to stream?
If renewed, the exact episode count of the fourth season can differ, as the network might go ahead and agree to make the next season supersized in case it becomes the final season. So, at this point, anything can happen until the renewal is confirmed. On the bright side, we are certain that the new season will try to keep at least 7 episodes with an average runtime of 40–52 minutes, just like the third season, and it is expected to premiere on the same date in order to be consistent in their storylines and keep the fans interested. On the other hand, the episode titles and synopsis of the series have not been released yet.
The network will publish those details when the episodes are due to air on the streaming service. So, we would advise fans to be patient and binge-watch all the prior parts in order to recall the events that have transpired so far. When Lupin Season 4 draws close to its release date along with the prior seasons, it will be available exclusively on Netflix, with other series of the same genre also accessible on the streaming platform with a range of membership options depending on the package you choose.
The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month at no additional cost with any of their services. You might not be able to watch this content because of geo-blocking, but using a VPN can help you get access to various content. At last, we urge the readers to check out the official trailer of the third season in order to recall the plot, which also highlights, “As the media and police look to Claire and Raoul, an on-the-run Assane schemes to protect them from afar — but old foes are eager to thwart his plans.”
